Long Winter Evening

Humphrey Bogart took The Big Sleep on this date in 1957.  As his character said in that film,

“I don’t mind if you don’t like my manners. I don’t like them myself. They’re pretty bad. I grieve over them long winter evenings.”

He may at times have been short on manners, but never on style.  Perhaps his spirit will revisit the City of Angels on this long winter evening, as the film industry seems to need a refresher course in that subject. Here is a scene that seems tailor-made for his reappearance.

Yale in Hollywood:
Entertainment Mixer
Beverly Hills, 7-10 p.m.

“We’re kicking off the new year with our first
Yale in Hollywood entertainment mixer.”


“Meet other Yalies
in – or interested
in – entertainment
at this informal
casual mixer at
the Continental.”


“It’s rumored Matt Damon and Ben Affleck were investors in this hipster minimalist-decor bar. If you want their Tuesday night all-you-can-eat sushi for $9.95, call to make a reservation. The Continental is located at 8400 Wilshire Blvd, Beverly Hills, (323) 782-9717.”

Mmmm… Blue booze and sushi!

  1. Those wonderful stars of yesterday. I grew up with wonderful actors like Bogart. I often watch the AMC channel….with all the wonderful grapics, bells and whistles in todays movies…I think for me, they shall never hold a candle to the classics. Gawd am I dating myself now? Guess I too am a classic!
